It aligns with Minnesota's sesquicentennial celebration, and might yield some interesting events and even more interesting subjects. Will you learn about Brainerd pottery or perhaps social structures?

Tell us if you check out some of the archeology events. Share the history you discover in words, pictures, or video on Minnesota Life.
